The Charming school for the young that empowers and impacts lives

The simplest things in life such as a thank you or good morning seems to be overlooked by the day to day activities. The excuse may be a busy day or the person may lack etiquette. Peta Gay Henry mother and philanthropist designed a program that teaches children the importance of manners. Le Charme creates not only confidence at an early age but also enriches young ladies through poise and grace while encouraging young men to be chivalrous while moving towards and empowered society.

Peta Gay Henry is proud of her Caribbean roots which plays a role on how she is bringing up her daughter. As she would create play dates for her daughter other parents would ask her advice on how to have a well behaved and mannered child such as her own. Her advice was appreciated by others and with that she created Le Charme.

The program caters to children as early as the age 3 years old and is considered an extracurricular activity in many of the schools throughout South Florida. As any other extracurricular activity this program is one that the children can use throughout their lifetime. Peta created a program that sets expectations and boundaries for children creating etiquette, confidence and poise. This twelve week program requires an hour of the child's time a week and practice at home with the parent. The simple things such as eating twice a week as a family can impact the child and the family in a positive way.

As a reward the children would attend a country club or experience ballroom dancing which also creates arts and culture. Peta Henry is part of the National Association of Urban Etiquette Professionals and with that she is able to help others in a society that begin with the children and continues into adulthood.

Too often children are rewarded for things they do not do correctly and Le Charme is the extracurricular activity that rewards children for doing what is right today and tomorrow
